Methyltrimethoxysilane Usage And Synthesis
Trimethoxy (methyl) silane is an organosilicon compound. It can be used as a crosslinker in the preparation of polysiloxane polymers. It can also be used as an acid scavenge used in the formation of substituted azulenes from allenylsilanes and tropyl?ium tetrafluoroborate. It can also be used as the precursor for synthesis of flexible silica aerogels.
Colorless clear liquid
Methyltrimethoxysilane(MTMS) in combination with iron nitrate altered the pore structure dramatically. As the Crosslinking agent of RTV silicone rubber and glass fiber surface treatment agent and talk to agents outside of reinforced plastic laminated products in order to improve the mechanical strength, heat resistance, moisture resistance. Methyltrimethoxysilane is used as an acid scavenger, for example in the formation of substituted azulenes from allenylsilanes and tropyl-ium tetrafluoroborate.
Methyltrimethoxysilane is a reagent used in they synthesis of electronic materials and organometallic compounds. Used in the coating of carbon-fiber surfaces, as well as in the synthesis of nanocomposites.
Methyltrimethoxysilane is highly miscible with standard organic solvents, such as alcohols, hydrocarbons and acetone. It is practically insoluble in neutral water and reacts only slowly to form silanols and higher condensation products. Addition of a hydrolytic catalyst (inorganic/organic acids, ammonia or amines) accelerates the hydrolysis of Methyltrimethoxysilane substantially.
As a Filler Modifier, Methyltrimethoxysilane is used mainly to render a wide range of surfaces and materials water repellent (e.g. mineral fillers, pigments, glass, cardboard). It may be used pure or in solution to treat fillers, using suitable mixing equipment. It may be necessary to first pre-treat the substrate with water and/or a catalyst. It is also used in the production of silicone resins and condensation-curing silicone rubber, used as an important component in sol-gel systems.
As one of the most common Alkoxy Crosslinkers, Methyltrimethoxysilane has high reactivity that precedes by nucleophilic substitution usually in the presence of acid or base catalysts.
Methyltrimethoxysilane is usually prepared from methyltrichlorosilane and methanol:
CH3SiCl3 + 3 CH3OH → CH3Si(OCH3)3 + 3 HCl
Trimethoxymethylsilane (MTM) is an organosilicon compound widely used as a precursor for the preparation of silica-based materials, which finds the applications in various fields. Particularly in molecular assembly, linking nano building blocks, and selective synthesis oligosiloxane compounds. It can also be utilized as a crosslinker in the synthesis of polysiloxane polymers.
